hey all. i am a cook and on my internship and i have always been happy to bake, even though i have little experiance at it... i love it. today was my day off so i decided to gon into work at 4am to hang out with the cake decorating chef. for the first hour, i watched him work and asked questions here and there. then came my turn to decorate a cake. we cut it into 4 pieces. i was scared at first becasue i have messed up a lot of cakes by trying to cut them in two and now four...wow. it turned out good. nice clean cuts then he wanted me to pour simple syrup on the pieces, which was easy and then use a jam filling. that went well until i noticed i screwed up and put filling on the very top of the fourth piece. he he then came the frosting part. it was somewhat hard... actually, it was really hard. the top i stuggled with becasue i always had a dome on the top of the cake. i need to work on that. then came the sides which was tricky and we took a plastic tool with teeth looking marks on them and made a nice design on the sides. that was hard as well. he wanted me to make a boarder on the top and bottom. it turned out good, a little uneven though i loved doing the cake. it made me very happy and motivated to try more.
